Q. I receive Social Security Disability Insurance. I want to invest in the stock market. How do investment earnings affect my disability benefit? I have been told not to report this money because it is not earned income.

A. No Social Security benefit recipient needs to report investment income. Only income from work activity affects eligibility for disability or retirement benefits.
